Features and benefits of this loan

The Bank of Melbourne Standard Variable Rate Home Loan is a full-featured, flexible home loan.

  • Loan term. The standard variable rate loan can be taken out for a loan term of up to 30 years and can be used for a variety of purposes.
  • Repayment flexibility. Customers can choose between setting their repayments to cover Principal and Interest payments, or opt for an interest-only payment. Repayments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly, though interest-only payments must be made monthly. Variable rate customers can make additional repayments at any time without penalty.
  • Lump sum repayments. If you receive an extra amount of cash, such as a tax return or bonus, you can deposit this amount directly into your mortgage. The amount will be paid directly off the principal balance owing.
  • Direct transfer. If you have Internet banking set up, you are able to transfer cash from your transaction account into your mortgage account at any time. You are also able to transfer funds from transaction accounts held with other banks if you wish.
  • Redraw facility. Any extra repayments made off the home loan can be redrawn if an emergency arises. The Redraw Request form can be filled in from the secure Online Banking site. Fees are listed below.
  • 100% offset account. Customers that have a standard variable rate home loan with the Bank of Melbourne can take advantage of the Mortgage Equaliser account. This gives them a 100% offset facility that reduces the amount of interest paid by offsetting interest calculated on the loan by the amount in the account.
  • Switching from variable to fixed interest rate. Bank of Melbourne customers can switch from a standard variable rate home loan to a fixed rate home loan. Once the fixed rate term expires, the mortgage will automatically revert to the standard variable rate. However, the customer may choose to contact the Bank of Melbourne to re-fix a variable loan once this has happened.
  • Variable rate disconts. The Bank of Melbourne offers an Advantage Package, which allows customers to package their home loan with other banking products, offering savings on fees and discounted interest rates.


  • Redraw fees. $0 online or over the phone, $25 at a branch.
  • Establishment fee. This home loan carries an establishment fee of $600
  • Monthly fee. This loan comes with a monthly admin fee of $10.
